Who Is Gloomier Than Teenagers? – Feeling Gloomy NYC’s Sadie Hawkins Dance
Sep 19, 2015 @ 11:00 pm - Sep 20, 2015 @ 4:00 am| $6
Summer’s end is nearly here, and everywhere gangs of teenagers have stopped ravaging their local late night establishments’ parking lots and are returning to class. Remember the angst? The unrequited crushes? The stressing over that math midterm? The endless popularity contest? Well we sure do, and frankly it’s high time someone commemorated all these things with a dance party.
We decided to make this a Sadie Hawkins dance party, because Buffy, Dawson, and pretty much every TV show about teenagers had one. Guys, you don’t need to be invited by the girls, but we’ll have a couple ladies choice slow dances so look your best. As a matter of fact we’re going to have a best-dressed contest with a killer prize, and even if you don’t get voted best dressed, we’ll have a photo booth for you to show off your looks – be they high school formal, jocks, cheerleaders, freaks, geeks, goths, whatever, just make it count.
All that, plus Feeling Gloomy DJs Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom will pack the night full of songs about teenage angst and unrequited love. Here are the details:
BEST DRESSED CONTEST
-We’re giving a signed copy of Leila Sales’ brand new YA novel “Tonight the Streets Are Ours” to the best dressed person or couple-
YEARBOOK PHOTO BOOTH
-The Grand Victory’s little side room will get teenaged up by us and we’ll have a photographer on hand to snap pics. Just remember to hide your braces-
-We’ll be posting two more contests here in coming days that will get you free tickets to the party and other prizes-
